According to 4C Healthcare Science team member, Zamek Sparks, “This community service project started as a class project for the Healthcare Science team to show our compassion and empathy for the tornado victims in Cairo. As we reached out to local businesses and community partners the support tremendously increased. We received many donations from various organizations and individuals.”
4C Academy Healthcare Science Instructor, Melissa Laslie, adds, ”Albany Technical College President, Dr. Parker, gave his immediate support, which was followed by many of his employees and their families. Through word of mouth, other businesses joined in our efforts, and our small class project quickly grew into a community affair.”
4C Academy team members filled a cargo trailer with supplies, which they delivered Friday, March 15thto the Cairo College and Career Academy for dispersal. In support of the project, 4C Academy CEO, Chris Hatcher explained, “We want our team members to experience the value of community service; this project allowed them to see the impact that can be made when everyone works together towards a shared goal. We are grateful to our community for the support and would like to recognize the businesses that contributed to our project.”
